    I agree with Kathy in Texas. This is an excellent book with lots of photos for learning how to English paper piece, but since I already know how, I was more interested in the patterns, which there were only 2 that I was interested in and one was in Chapter 4, no instructions for the quilt. Another thing, and this is a personal preference, the front cover showed reproduction fabrics, which I love, yet none of the projects in the book used them which disappointed me too. The full direction patterns that she did give were for simple things that I made for myself years ago – sewing kit, pincushion, pillow. A beginner in English paper piecing would certainly benefit from this book.

    I love EPP, and this is a very good EPP book, but sadly, no directions for the EPP patterns in Chapter 4. How big are the hexagon, diamond, half-hexagon, templates, etc.??? Seems a shame to get us interested, then give us no directions. Because of this omission, I would only rate the book at a 3.

    This book has really opened the limits of quilting for me. No longer do I need to be inside, plugged in to quilt. I have since started taking my pieces with me everywhere I go. I love the graph paper at the back of the book. So you can really expand on her ideas to make something personal for yourself.
